The Barchester Chronicles
The Reverend Septimus Harding is one of the most respected men in Barchester. He lives an honest life as Precentor of the Cathedral and Warden of Hiram’s hospital. The Bishop is a close friend and the Archdeacon of Barcester, his son-in-law. His is certainly a cosy life - what could be more perfect? With the arrival of the passionate reformer, John Bold, and his accusations of corruption, Harding finds the church being attacked on all sides. His world is rocked as the scandal spreads and even he starts to believe that John Bold is right…
